The grapes for the Wachauer Riesling originate from flat sites in the towns of Unterloiben and Durnstein. Here the alluvial soil is covered with some loess (windblown silt, clay and sand) layers. The grapes ripen early and are picked before the higher altititude sites. These factors -- in addition to the perfect ripeness of the 2009 vintage -- account for the aromatic, generous and forward character of the Wess Wachauer Riesling. The wine offers citrus, apricot and mango fruit braced with refeshing acidity and succulent length.
